English Premier League side, Arsenal and Tottenham are set to bid for RB Leipzig defender, Dayot Upamecano, during the January transfer window.
According to Daily Express, the North London side new manager, Mikel Arteta, is looking to sign a centre-back and the Gunners are ready to meet the £50million price tag for Upamecano.
“We need players back from injuries, first of all, to be more solid, more compact.”
“And then we might need to do one or two things if the right players become available, to help us.”
“But at the moment I am more concerned with getting the maximum out of the players available to us,” Arteta said last week.
The former Manchester United assistant coach will have to fight out for Upamecano against Jose Mourinho who is a great fan of the defender.
